A Place In The Sun's Jasmine Harman revealed how she lost 20lbs

Mum-of-two Jasmine wrote at the time: "Can you spot the difference? One was in August, and one is now! I've lost over 20lbs since I began exercising again 5 months ago, along with eating more whole #vegan foods and less junk, smaller portions, less alcohol, fewer snacks like crisps and biscuits, and definitely a lot less bread."

She continued: "I feel great and I'm sticking with it, slowly but surely getting to my goal. A lot of people have said I've lost too much weight and I’ve lost my curves... well hopefully now you’ll see that is not true! Both photos are un-retouched! I'm hoping this will motivate those looking for a long term lifestyle change! And thanks so much to all those who have inspired me!"

Jasmine has often posted about her love of vegan food online, revealing she is a big fan of mushroom-based dishes. The star has been a vegetarian since she was a child, but went vegan in 2014 after becoming a mum.

She told Your Healthy Living: "I don’t think I would have coped as well with the last four years of interrupted sleep (as a mum of small children who don’t like sleeping) without the energy boost I get from my vegan diet.

"I lost all my baby weight much sooner after my second pregnancy (as a vegan). I was back in my jeans after two to three weeks! My skin is much more naturally glowing and youthful."
